Training: Drop into the gym during training hours and a trainer will work with you and up to 4 others in a small group. Training includes partner pads and other partner drills as well as ring and bag work. We do not teach big group classes, as we believe in teaching people individually as everyone has a different way of learning.

Open Gym Drop in: Member can come in during gym hours and do their own workout. No instruction provided.

Membership Commitment: We require a minimum 6 month commitment from you as you will not learn the sport of boxing in one month. We are a private training facility on private land and we require all members to be long time members as the Teofista Family is a very small tight knit group of people. We welcome anybody as long as they are prepared to commit them- selves for 6 months. After 6 months with Teofista you will know if we are the right fit for you, but ask that you give us 6 months to win you over as, Boxing is a sport which takes time. It will take anybody a month or two to just get settled into how the gym works and how the schedule works. If this does not sound like the right fit, we recommend you looking into other boxing gyms in Cochrane or Calgary as they will provide you with basic training on a drop in basis or on a month to month basis.

Monthly memberships require a visa or mastercard on file which will be debited each month for a minimum of 6 months. We require a 30 day cancellation after the 6 months has been completed. Monthly membership are NOT eligible to be put on hold.

Paid in full membership are permitted to put memberships on hold with written confirmation from Teofista Boxing. A membership can be help for a maximum of 60 days. (ie. If you want to take the summer off you can put your membership on hold for July and August and it will resume in September)

Training

Drop into the gym during training hours to work with one of our trainers. This is where you will work in a small group learning partner drills and pad work as well as other boxing drills. You will get one on one work as well as partner and small group training.
Amateur, Masters and Professional Sparring for all levels; Whether you are a professional or amateur boxer looking for the best quality sparring partners in the city or you are a mma, muay thai, karate expert or kickboxer looking to get an edge on your competition, we can help you.

Recreational Sparring

Some people who want to try sparring but don’t want to go to work the next day with a bruised rib or black eye. We would love to help you in a controlled sparring environment where there is very little to no contact so you can see what it is really like. We will make sure that the person you are sparring with is able to control themselves so that you can get the most realistic experience in the ring.

Cross Training and Hockey Specific Training all ages

Eric de Guzman grew up playing AAA hockey from Atoms until Midget. Eric was also a local Cochrane General of the Heritage Junior B Hockey League from 2001-2003 serving as the assistant captain. Growing up playing a high level of hockey in Penticton gave Eric many hockey contacts and cross training ideas for Teofista Boxing gym. Eric de Guzman, Duncan Keith, and Hayley Wickensheiser communicate on a regular basis on training tips and new upcoming methods for training. Eric is very excited and enjoys teaching hockey players in specific on the sweet science as it teaches much more than punching. Body awareness, balance, endurance, and eye hand co-ordination are some aspects gained through boxing training. Not to mention when using the boxing equipment such as the heavy bag, speed bags, double end bags, slip bags, and others.
